The Journey from an E-2 Visa to an EB-5 Green Card: A Fast Track
August 6, 2019
02:00 PM (ET)
Eighty countries have treaties with the United States that permit foreign nationals to obtain E-2 treaty investor visas, which allow an investor or certain key executives permission to work in the United States. But, the E-2 visa does not lead to a U.S. green card, and minor children can only stay on their parent’s visa until reaching 21 years old. The EB-5 visa does provide, however, a path for a foreign national to become a lawful permanent resident. Thus, the question arises: how may an E-2 treaty investor convert his or her nonimmigrant visa into an EB-5 investor green card to allow him or her to remain permanently in the United States and (after five years) apply to become a U.S. citizen? Our expert panelists will address this journey to permanent residency for E-2 treaty investors. They also will discuss the careful planning and detailed strategy required for E-2 investors to properly structure their respective businesses to transition the visa into an EB-5 green card.
